When I try to open more than one document at a time from anywhere I get this
Move Items box opening up for each document. It says:

Select the place where you want to move "The Document". Then check the move
button.

[A List of My System]

To view any subfolder, click a plus sign above.

Make New Folder Move Cancel

[Three buttons at the bottom]

Has anybody seen this before, This just started happening for reasons
unknown. Before if I opened up 5 documents they opened up, now this. Thanks
for any help

I would check if this is caused by some software running in the
background. See "How to Troubleshoot By Using the Msconfig Utility in
Windows XP" (http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=310560) and "How to
Perform a Clean Boot in Windows XP"
(http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=310353).

Bruce,

SYMPTOM

When I select two or more files in Windows Explorer to open in Notepad or
any other program, for every selected file - before opening it in the proper
application - I first get a dialog asking me where to move the item.
Canceling this dialog brings up the next asking where to copy the file.
Canceling this dialog leads to opening of the file and bringing up the next
files "move-dialog"! Pretty irritating!

CAUSE

The Copy to and Move to Folder options weren't designed to be on the context
menu. For a complete explanation, see this page - by Raymond Chen [MS]

The Old New Thing : What goes wrong when you add "Copy To" to the context
menu:
http://blogs.msdn.com/oldnewthing/archive/2004/02/02/66160.aspx

Problem will be resolved once these context entries are removed. The entry
might be present here:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT \ AllFilesystemObjects \ shellex \ ContextMenuHandlers

NOTE: Before you modify a registry key, make a backup by exporting to a REG
file.

Delete these two items:
{C2FBB630-2971-11d1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}
{C2FBB631-2971-11d1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}

{C2FBB630-2971-11d1-A18C-00C04FD75D13} is the Microsoft CopyTo Service
{C2FBB631-2971-11d1-A18C-00C04FD75D13} is the Microsoft MoveTo Service
